Sorry It Took So Long….
I said I would post a pic in a reply to this thread, Way Awesome Pilonidal Cyst Surgery , of my own surgery (4 years ago now). Here it goes, hope you had lunch
For the gory details, read my comment in response to the post mentioned above… that “bump/callous/thing/WTF” is about 2″ around & sticks out about 2″ (to give you some perspective) & the red/blistering is because it seeps constantly, have change the skivvies 3-4 times a day. Mainly wanted to show you what a Pilonidal Cyst surgery looks like after heals.
Keep on Popping!
Just got home from the Dermatologists office, she said the ‘Butt Nipple’ is Lymphatic tissue that has bulged out from the skin that was caused from several things… and the seeping is Lymphatic fluid.

(NOTE: ProfessorPop’s picture is a scar where normally you would see that large hole where the cyst was excised. No, you aren’t seeing the “other” area, that is not in this picture, in case anyone got confused. And thanks, ProfessorPop for sharing this pic with everyone!!!)
